Project Manager, Story Contracting Limited

I am currently working as a Project Manager at Story Contracting, joining in October 2022. Before my time at Story, I worked at Volker Rail for over five years as an Assistant Project Manager, Graduate and Undergraduate placement student.
During my time in the rail industry, I have worked on, and delivered, various exciting and successful schemes such as, North West Electrification Phase 3 and REAL Alliance PSU 1&2. More recently, I have worked on renewals frameworks with Network Rail in Signaling, Telecoms and Civils. At Story, I am currently delivering safety improvements for NR Works Delivery, installing tactiles at circa 55 stations across North West, Central and West Coast South following the Eden Park fatality.
I have a project delivery focused background and a passion for building positive relationships that add value. During my time as a Graduate and Undergraduate, I worked as Trainee Environmental and Sustainability Advisor amongst other site roles to gain experience, before moving into project management. Therefore, this has allowed me to understand other roles that support a wider team. I have a versatile skillset to adapt challenges faced when delivering projects and have won various awards throughout my career such as the ‘Rising Star’ and training and development awards.

Its our role to foster innovation and make others feel empowered, as construction is a rewarding, fast paced and exciting industry to be a part of."
